Signatures on Oriental rugs and carpets

You will find many Oriental rugs and carpets contain the woven signature of the weaver. The importance of this is usually over stated by dealers and customers alike. A quality rug or carpets will speak for its self and many very fine handmade rugs and carpets remain unsigned. Make sure the Oriental rug or carpet you are interested in is signed within the main body of the carpet and not protruding out onto the fringe as this is a sign that the signature of a famous weaver could have been added at a later date. Some famous signatures you may come across in Persian rugs and carpets are, Sarafian from Isfahan and Habibian from Nain.
